Introduction: Paper Lantern
How to make a paper lantern.
Step 1: Materials
You will need paper (Color does not matter)
Markers/ crayons/ colored pencils/paint (Optional)
Step 2: Paper
Fold your paper in half
Horizontal or vertical is fine.
Step 3: Decorating Your Paper
Decorate your one side of the paper.
If you don't do it that is perfectly fine.
Step 4: Cutting the Paper
You will need to cut the paper, to make it a lantern.
Just cut the paper going down into lines.
If you want to make it look like a christmas tree, make the lines start off small and get bigger. Then add a small one at the last line for the bottom of the christmas tree.
*Don't make these lines go to the open side of the paper. Cut the lines from the closed side.
The picture shows what it should look like.
Step 6: Forming the Lantern
Take your scissors or glue. Fold your lantern. Not in half. Start off folding it in half but then twist it to make a circle on the top, you should see a circle on the top or the bottom. Glue, tape, or staple this. There is your lantern.
